Take The Toke Heard Round The World - YIPster Times


Published 1975
SHOW MORE


The Yippies were a highly theatrical political activist group established in 1967 - Abbie Hoffman, Anita Hoffman and Paul Krassner were among its early founders. The term is a backronym - it was conceived by Krassner as a whimsical play on "hippies"; later the acronym Youth International Party was applied to have the group taken more seriously. The Yippies are fascinating - click here for story and links. For a short video, click here. In 1972 The Yipster Times was started by Dana Beal; in 1973 the Yippies moved into the building at 9 Bleecker Street where The Yipster Times (later Overthrow) was published - the photo above shows the original sign. Beal still lives in the building which is being converted into a museum after a fight against eviction (read about the future plans here). The building has continued as a locus for activism over the years - some Yippies still remain. Currently Beal and the organization Cures Not Wars are crusading for the legalization of Ibogaine and its use for heroin addiction.
